Cat. #00320211: S.Z. SAKALL

Scarce vintage 3.5 x 5.5-inch sepia-tone postcard portrait, boldly signed in blue fountain pen with his full name: "Szoke Sakall / Wien '33'. In very good condition. A leading man in German silents until World War II, S.Z. Sakall fled the Third Reich and found new work in the States as a character actor, playing scores of lovable, if somewhat excitable and befuddled uncles, businessmen and local eccentrics.  Among his credits were supporting roles in  Ball of Fire (1941), Casablanca (1942), Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942), The Dolly Sisters (1945), and In the Good Old Summertime (1949).
